Hello all!

My name is Al Vanjel, and I am new here.

I am a musician and DJ specializing in euphoric music with vocals and dubstep beats.

If you would like, you can check out my latest mix, "Light and Love" here:
http://soundcloud.com/al-vanjel/al-vanjel-light-and-love

I would love to play on the Playa in 2012, and I was hoping some of you could point me to the right place to post my information, etc.

Your help is much appreciated! :D

Welcome to ePlaya! You may care to take a look around the boards, and in particular the 2012 Art & Performance board, with its 'Artists Seeking Stages' thread. Give that first post a read. You may also care to take a look at stuff like the survival guide or the rest of the site so you can better prepare yourself. Cheers

Welcome.

Welcome to the ePlaya! This is our lucky day! We certainly could use another DJ who is into dubstep! I was afraid there wouldn't be any of those on the playa in 2012. This certainly takes a load off of my mind. Welcome!

Hi Alvanjel,

The best way to DJ on the playa is to ally yourself with a camp as early as possible (right around now), or to arrange a whole event yourself on one of the open stages. It might help to network at Regional Events. Go the the main Burning Man website and click on "Regionals" in small print towards the top.

Be prepared for an uphill challenge . . . there are many more DJs then there are empty slots at the established sound camps.
